No i have not found a solution, officially google's stance is that 3rd party apps cannot access USB otg devices..guess we are waiting for an update then.

3:rd party apps can still access files on a USB drive but with Android 6.0, they need to go through the Storage Access Framework in Android. There may be apps that have not been updated to support Android 6.0 yet but if i test for example ES File Explorer, i can access the files on a connected USB drive.

I downloaded ES file explorer pro last night (for £2.99) and it does not work, it shows me the USB device but will not allow me to use it. It shows an error saying USB OTG not supported for exfat devices. the drive is a 64gb usb 3.0 Dual sandisk flash stick. Do you think swapping to a 32gb Fat32 formatted device may work ?

I tried it here and as you say, seems like ES File Explorer doesn't support exFAT. The same drive works in this app when i format it with FAT32 though.
But i was able to access files on the USB-drive (when formatted with exFAT) using Solid Exlorer File Manager.

Updated my Z5 premium to 6.0 this morning. USB and SD storage are no long work with file commander any more. In commander home page it does not show up those 2 storages even usb connected by clicking usb detector. I use this app to transfer photos from messenger to USB everyday for my business. I have to stop it now. Tried whole day in different ways but failed. Even tried to install the other file managers, failed. Need big help please.

Thanks for your information. Downloaded the total commander. It dosen't show USB divice either. I need copy the pictures people sent me, paste them to the USB and print them. It seems the USB doesn't work with any of the file manager apps after update to 6. Couldn't find built in file manager from setting-divice-storage.
